Newell, J. and A. Ramaswami. Urban food–energy–water systems: past, current, and future research trajectories. Environmental Research Letters, 15(5).

This editorial from Joshua P. Newell and Anu Ramaswami introduces a special issue of Environmental Research Letters, “Focus on Urban Food–Energy–Water Systems: Interdisciplinary, Multi-Scalar and Cross-Sectoral Perspectives.” The issue consists of nine articles, each of which presents emerging research on interconnected FEW systems as they relate to cities and regions. The papers are interdisciplinary, multiscalar, and cross-sectoral as they consider the effects of FEW interactions on the health of cities, their inhabitants, and the distant peoples and places from which they source their resources.
